20 Jun New Patent Sheds Light on Some of the Advancements Fortscale has Made in the UEBA Industry


Ever question, “How DOES Fortscale do it?” Ever wonder, “How is Fortscale able to provide such insightful analysis on the activity of users and entities our environment?” Ever think, “why don’t they have to establish rules or thresholds like everyone else?”

Well, today we can put some of these questions to rest and share a little of the secret sauce, with the announcement of a new patent – “Identifying Insider-Threat Security Incidents via Recursive Anomaly Detection of User Behavior.” The patent illustrates some of the innovations we have brought to the user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA) market.

It covers some of the advancements we have made in machine-learning technology that enable us to identify, alert and score anomalous activity and uncover insider threats. Our proprietary, patented Behavioral Analytics algorithms have been created specifically to operate autonomously. There are no rules or thresholds to define, we simply follow the data and let it do the talking.

The technology covered by the patent is available in Fortscale Presidio, the industry’s first embeddable UEBA engine that allows SIEM, EDR/EPP, DLP, CASB, IAM, Firewall and other security infrastructure vendors to integrate advanced behavioral analytics into their solutions. By embedding Presidio, security vendors can use this ground-breaking technology to:

  • Establish the correct context behind the behaviors of users and entities in the environment.
  • Incorporate accurate, risk-based information into alerts to expose the intent and threat-level of specific activity.
  • Improve decision-making and dynamically adjust enforcement to better protect an organization from cyberattacks and risky insider activity.

As a founder, I always knew the potential of our approach. With today’s patent announcement, you can see for yourself what is possible. I am so excited to bring behavioral analytics to the entire security infrastructure. I am proud to call many of the brightest and most experienced security experts and software engineers in the industry my colleagues and want to congratulate them on this accomplishment. Our specialists, coupled with feedback from our strong customer and partner base, is what drives our technology forward, stimulating and advancing innovations like those addressed by the new patent.  We are grateful for the collaborative effort of so many, it is certainly one of the key attributes that makes Fortscale successful.

Ophir Rachman
A proven technology leader and serial entrepreneur, Ophir brings to Fortscale over 17 years of experience in the information security space. Before joining Fortscale, he worked at VMware for more than eight years, where he led their security efforts, including patenting machine introspection technologies and launching the VMsafe partner program with leading security vendors such as Symantec, McAfee, and TrendMicro. Before that, Ophir co-founded Securimine, an early security data analytics company that applied data mining concepts to security logs.

Ophir began his career in the internet security space in 1998 as a co-founder of Entercept Security, which was acquired by McAfee in 2003. Entercept launched the industry’s first host-based intrusion prevention product (in essence coining the term), and; its innovative core technology is still part of many leading security products to this day. Ophir earned his Ph.D. in computer science from the Israel Institute of Technology (Technion).
